Re: 57.4%

I live in NYC so I also see lots of tourists with DSLR's. My very unscientific observation is that a large majority, probably 80% or more, only have the 18-55 kit lens. The rest also have a lens in the 55-200 or 70-300 range.

I also see a lot of bridge cameras and P&S's and a few high end compacts. Interestingly, I don't see a lot of tourists shooting with their phones.
